Happy Friday…the 13th!
A solar eclipse will be occurring tomorrow. This occurs when the moon passes in front of the sun making it look like a “ring of fire” in the sky. Make sure you do NOT look at the eclipsed sun with the naked eye. Damage can occur to your retina if proper protection is not worn while observing the eclipse.
